A senior citizen from Missouri has been confirmed dead after she was knocked over and killed by a mother cow who was protecting her calf. The late woman was tending to the calf when the incident occurred.


The Iowa Ranch Horse Association has put up a heartfelt tribute on Facebook in honor of one of its SE directors, Jane Heisey, who recently lost her life after being knocked out by a mother cow.

The tribute described Jane as someone who was passionate about ranching and enjoyed tending to cattle and horses with her family in Northern Missouri. The 76-year-old was said to have been a long-time member of the association.

Jane, who lived in Missouri with her aged spouse, Glenn Heisey, was said to have been tagging the ears of a newly born calf. The mother cow was being protective, and she knocked Jane out and stepped on her head.

Authorities have since ruled her death as an accident. Sullivan County Coroner Bon Wyant identified Jane and also certified that she died at the scene. Jane’s friends and family have also put up tributes on social media.


The old rancher was born in 1944, a Pennsylvania native who graduated with honors from the university. She married Glenn in 1965, and they had two children, Sheryl Lynn and David Paul.

A similar incident reported in 2019 had Pip Peacock in a coma for eight days after she and her dog were caught in a stampede.


The family of four later moved to Missouri in 1973, where they started their family farm. Before the relocation, she worked in Quality Control for 20 years at Trenton Foods.

Jane is survived by her husband, their two children, and three grandchildren, Kendra, Jaecy, and Kinsey. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. The late ranch owner has been cremated, and a memorial service has been set for May 26.



reported in 2019 had Pip Peacock in a coma for eight days after she and her dog were caught in a stampede in Peak District. A herd of cows trampled the duo during a stampede.

Peacock’s dog, Buster, died in the accident, but she was left in a coma, needing 17 titanium plates for her ribcage. After she woke up, the 63-year-old narrated her ordeal and how three people came along and saved her.

Peacock was transported to the hospital by air in under 10 minutes instead of a 45-minute drive to the hospital. She suffered over 34 broken bones and wounds. The old lady was, however, able to leave the hospital within a month.
